As COVID19 pandemic is far from being over, many countries are applying preventive measures to reduce the infection rates, one of them being wearing masks. In the United Arab Emirates, masks are obligatory outside private residences; this means that they must be worn even in the office when leaving one’s desk.
With sustainability at heart, Egis in the UAE offered an alternative solution to single use masks: the employees can chose to use washable masks.
The masks are 3 layered, breathable, with an option to add an additional filter, and with adjustable ear loops. They are easy to wash and most importantly – they will seriously reduce the amount of waste created by the single use masks.
Other Egis offices in the region are following the suit and we hope that all Egis locations will offer the same choice to the employees.
